Honolulu (AP) -- Matt Kuchar is not up to speed on the PGA Tour's guideline for granting releases to play in a conflicting events, mainly because it has never been an issue for him.

Not that he doesn't love to travel. Kuchar played the Scottish Open and Dutch Open during his first full year on tour 20 years ago. Since then, he has played in Singapore and Fiji, Abu Dhabi and France. Only four years ago, he played three regular European tour events.
